From the instructions this is a stove top cooked salsa. Very nice. I prefer the fresh salsa. I simply remove the seeds and pulp of the insides of roma tomates and hand dice them. Add shalots, fresh green chillis, chopped coriander, lime juice salt and ground pepper. Refrigerate in a glass sealed container.
